Trolls and fall colors

After a couple of rainy days today is sunny with no cloud in the sky (though it is rather cool, there was frost on the roofs and car windows in the morning).

Niks and Naks wanted to go out and see how well they match the landscape.

Here are some pretty maples on a nearby street.

More maples.

And a few more. The colors look so intense when the sun is shining.

A mountain ash in a nearby park.

Naks: Look, we match the fallen leaves!

Niks: We sure do!

Naks: Except your hair!

Niks: But my hair matches the sky!

Golden birches.

More birches.

Fallen leaves and fallen trolls.

Naks: Maybe we'll rest here a while.

Niks: Yes, We can sunbathe a little.

Niks: Mountain ash berries!

Naks: Pass some to me, too!

Niks: These are easier to get at.

Naks: Excellent! Mountain ash berry jelly tastes good with pickled flies.

Naks: The blueberries have turned red, too!

Niks: What a pity that there are no berries left.

Naks: Never mind, the leaves taste good, too.

Niks: Yes, they make good herb tea.

Niks: Peekaboo!

Niks: The fireweeds have gone all dry.

Naks: Now they would burn well.

Another golden birch.

Niks: Wonderful rotten leaves.

Naks: These will make wonderful vegtable soup!

Niks: Better than cabbage soup.

Niks: It is rather windy on the shore...

Naks: But the lake sure is intensely blue today.

Niks: Hey, who tilted the horizon!

Naks: This is how the shore looks looking upwards from the water's edge.

Niks: Soft moss and fallen leaves...

Naks: We'll rest a bit here...

A very bright bush.

This is the same bush from another direction.

Niks: See, we do have sunshine here sometimes!

Naks: Even if the sun does not rise very high any more.
